Workspace setup using the adapter cable

Create a clutter-free environment

Remove the cable clutter from your desk. With the built-in audio port you no longer need to run a separate audio cable from your monitor or speakers directly to your desktop or laptop computer. Simply plug the audio cable from your speakers into the adapter cable for a simple and tidy solution. 

In order to use the audio function of the adapter, it needs to be powered through USB. Simply connect a Micro-USB cable into the adapter from your computer, monitor or USB grommet in order to provide the necessary power.

Substitute for a damaged audio port

The adapter guarantees you always have all of the connections you need. If the audio port on your computer is damaged or blocked, this adapter cable ensures you still have sound available for watching video presentations, listening to music while you work or chatting with your colleagues over Skype™.

The adapter cable is compatible with Intel® Thunderbolt™, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt™ I/O port, and supports resolutions up to 1920x1200 (WUXGA).

The MDP2VGAAMM2M is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

  • Connect your speakers and a VGA monitor to your Mini DisplayPort equipped computer with the cables hidden and out of the way
  • Use in your boardroom or office workstations for installations requiring 6 feet of cable

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

  1. If using a display with VGA input, use the On-Screen Display menu to perform an auto-adjust of the image.
  2. Adjust the resolution to be the exact resolution and refresh rate recommended by the display manufacturer.

Check that the device is not being used in reverse.

The display does not support the resolution set within Display Settings. Adjust the resolution to be the exact resolution and refresh rate recommended by the display manufacturer.

If a DisplayPort converter with audio is not passing sound from the source to the destination, complete the following:

  1. Make sure that the DisplayPort connection on the video card is the default audio playback device.
  2. Make sure that the video card has the DisplayPort audio codec installed. If not, visit the video card manufacturer's website to find out how to update the video card driver.

Before You Buy

When you convert video from a source that uses DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort to DVI or HDMI (for example, a computer to a monitor), you will need to consider the difference between passive and active adapters.

If the source supports dual-mode DisplayPort (also known as DP++), then you can use a passive adapter because the source can perform the conversion. If the source does not support DP++, then you need to use an active converter, which includes additional chips to perform the conversion.

Thunderbolt ports support DP++ natively. To run multiple monitors from the same computer, refer to the Active Adapters section below.

Passive Adapters

Passive adapters are less expensive since they do not need to include additional chips. A quick way to check whether you can use a passive adapter is to see if the DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort source has the DP++ symbol above it. The symbol is a D with a P inside of it, with two + signs to the left, one on top of the other.

Active Adapters

Active adapters use additional chips to make the conversion inside the adapter, regardless of whether the source supports DP++. This means that active adapters are more expensive than passive adapters.

If you want to use multiple monitors with the same computer, you should use an active adapter because some video cards cannot run the maximum number of monitors while using DP++. This is especially true if the computer has more than one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connection. Check with your video card manufacturer to confirm which type of adapter you need for the setup that you would like to run.

Note: You should use passive adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, except when you are converting from DisplayPort to VGA, since that type of conversion requires active adapters.  For more information on using adapters with StarTech.com MST hubs, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.

Surface Dock

If you experience issues when you connect passive video signal adapters to the Surface Dock, Microsoft recommends that you use active video signal converters instead. StarTech.com offers an active video signal converter for DVI monitors (MDP2DVIS) and for HDMI monitors (MDP2HD4KS).

Note: This issue does not apply to the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station.
